The sky keeps staring at me
Frozen in my tracks
(Nothing else to see)
And when I move my face left
You're always standing there
(A shadow I can't see)
And even then I can't trace
You're walking away

I put my ears to the ground
Always pushing down
(Nothing I can hear)
I found the worst half in me
I'm cut off at the knees
(Can't even take a stand)
Against your words and beliefs
We didn't wanna freeze

(All of the years, leaving me here, gun-shy)
I don't want to say it all again (the pain, losing my aim)
I never seem to see
(And why haven't we changed?)
Do I always feel it all the same
(Story to blame?)
The blisters in my eyes
(Recite, all of my wrongs, you know it's wrong)
A guide that has only led me stray
And even as I limp (you smile)

The cold keeps tearing at me
Slowing down my blood
(Unable to speak)
I left my mind long ago
Choosing something false
(Always letting go)
And when I try to face you
You're walking away

(All of the years, leaving me here, gun-shy)
I don't want to say it all again (the pain, losing my aim)
I never seem to see
(And why haven't we changed?)
Do I always feel it all the same
(Story to blame?)
The blisters in my eyes
(Recite, all of my wrongs, you know it's wrong)
A guide that has only led me stray
And even as I limp (you smile)
